Little Kid - "I Thought That You'd Been Raptured"

Toronto's Little Kid get compared a lot to fellow Canadian Neil Young. Hopefully they don't mind that comparison since their latest single isn't going to do anything to dispel those. "I Thought That You'd Been Raptured" is a ramblin' 60's style folk song with some modern pop and indie elements. The song has more of an upbeat feel to it than you might expect by my description, but there is a bit of humor to it as well. Kenny Boothby explains the song:

"This song is one of the most purely fictional songs I’ve written. It’s essentially all built around a joke I came up with where a man comes home early from work and finds his wife’s clothes around the house, but his first thought is that she has been raptured and he has been left behind. Of course, it turns out she is sleeping with someone else in the bedroom upstairs…

"Musically and lyrically, this is one of the songs I’m most proud of… I’m especially happy to have found a way to showcase my stupid sense of humour a little more obviously than usual."

You can listen to "I Thought That You'd Been Raptured" below. Transfiguration Highway, the upcoming album from Little Kid, is due out July 3 on Solitaire Recordings. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Little Kid, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
